The Asian Tiger Mosquitos don’t look too much different from regular mosquitoes.

Would you know one if you saw it? What’s the difference between these an other mosquitoes.

According to Mosquito.org, there are 174 species of mosquitoes in the United States – and growing. In Maryland, there are 58 species currently identified says Larry Johnson of Mosquito Squad of Frederick Maryland on his blog. Asian Tiger mosquitoes are different from most of the other 58 species of mosquitoes identified in Maryland.  They are very aggressive day feeders.  They’re very fast and leave their bite before you know they’ve been there.

What makes them a little scarier is they don’t need a lot of water to breed.  They can lay their eggs in tree holes, gutters, and other small places where water puddles.

Mosquito Squad treatment has shown to be effective in fighting Asian Tiger Mosquitoes in the Frederick, MD area.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Asian Tiger mosquitoes are known carriers of Dengue FeverWest Nile Virus, and Encephalitis.
